Here’s What You Must do Now
Before you speak with an insurance company, or accept even a single dollar of payment or compensation, or sign anything, or attempt to file a lawsuit on your own, you must contact a competent lawyer.
Here’s a perfect example of why.
We were once hired by the families of two men who were involved in a terrible accident with a big rig. After the initial accident, the truck’s trailer was stretched across the unlit road on a moonless night. Only the tail lights of the trailer near the highway’s shoulder were visible to oncoming drivers. Our clients rounded a curve and smashed into the trailer unaware. One man died at the scene. The other was left fighting for his life.
The force of the collision ripped off the roof of the vehicle. The next day we were hired and flew to the scene of the accident and quickly begin our investigation. Our client’s car was already in the salvage yard once we arrived. We examined the vehicle and found it odd that the headlights were gone. This immediately raised a red flag, especially when we spotted a security camera trained in the yard. We asked the owner to view the video and were appalled to see someone with the trucking company illegally removing the headlights! Then the company tried to claim our client had been driving a car without them. There was egg on their face when we produced the video that caught them red-handed. You can guess who won this case.

But here’s the thing. If the loved ones of these two men who were doing nothing more than driving down the road (sober we might add), minding their own business when they ran into the big rig had a couple more days to hire us, this crucial evidence would have been gone forever, because the salvage yard’s surveillance system didn’t save its video for more than two days.
You need to take steps to preserve the evidence in your case now and to act quickly. You must hire a lawyer to begin investigating the accident scene immediately. Every second you wait, evidence can disappear, sometimes very curiously. Witnesses’ memories fade. Or their stories’ can “mysteriously” change. The accident scene changes either by the passing of just a few days or because your opponents do it themselves. Lies and missing evidence can cripple your legal right to fair compensation for a big rig accident from the moment it happens only if you allow it to happen by doing nothing during the critical days following your wreck.
As soon as we are hired, our Law Firm begins a thorough investigation of the accident scene. We uncover every bit of evidence that proves the liability of the truck driver, the trucking company, and any other third parties. We inspect all the vehicles involved. We clearly survey the accident scene, measure distances, hunt for photographic and video evidence, and assemble it all to prove your strong case. No stone is left unturned to bring all the evidence into play that proves beyond reproach, your damage claim. That investigation also includes the assets and insurance coverage of all possible defendants. Because what’s the use of suing someone who can’t afford to pay? Find more here
